Manchester United and Leicester City have played 120 matches in the history of both clubs – the first match being played on the 22nd September 1894; a 3-2 victory for Newton Heath over Leicester Fosse. United have won 64 times, drawn 28 times and lost 33 times. United last lost against Leicester in the 5-3 thriller on the 21st September 2014.
